“This Is How (We Want You To Get High)” – a funky, upbeat classic -provides perfect finale to Last Christmas, a new movie inspired by the music of both George Michael and Wham!
As part of the soundtrack to the upcoming film Last Christmas, “This Is How (We Want You to Get High)” is a funky and upbeat tune that is a perfect addition to Michael’s extensive library, and is a previously unreleased track. This track was recorded during George’s final studio sessions and is his first original material to be shared in seven years.
The track is everything that George Michael music has always been to his loyal fans; it has a seductive George Michael hook and melody and Michael’s smooth signature vocals throughout (which were incidentally, written by Michael himself). The material started being fleshed out in early 2012, going through several iterations, with finishing touches being put on late in 2015 as George completed his final recording sessions.
In the Spring of 2018, after discussions over which songs would be in the film, Last Christmas co-star Emma Thompson was given an exclusive preview of four new, finished and unreleased George Michael tracks. “This Is How (We Want You To Get High)” was the track she found herself gravitating to instantly, remarking how the lyrics resonated with the film’s central themes.
